Permanent CO2 storage projects play a key role in Europe’s climate change mitigation efforts. But the success of these projects relies on clear guidance that provides operators with regulatory certainty.

This factsheet summarises the findings and conclusions of the ZEP report Experience in developing CO2 storage under the Directive on the geological storage of carbon dioxide. The report is the outcome of a workgroup convened by the Zero Emissions Platform, aiming to facilitate the work of operators and public authorities working on the deployment of CO2 storage projects.
